Improving Primary Health Care in Oklahoma through Community Engagement

Dr. Paul Spicer, Community Engagement KCA Co-Director

The Community Engagement Core focuses on enhancing relationships and communication between researchers and clinicians, policy makers, and communities; developing a primary health care extension system through which innovations can be more effectively disseminated and implemented; strengthening practice- and community-based research; encouraging translation of potentially impactful discoveries into useful innovations; and helping other IDeA states develop similar programs and approaches..

The Community Engagement Core will also establish a Translational Think Tanks (T3) Program that brings together teams of researchers and, when appropropriate, clinicians, policy makers and community members to take promising discoveries and attempt to translate them into useful clinical innovations.
